WhatsApp processes record 27 billion messages in one day
Yep, you read that right: WhatsApp has processed a record 27 billion messages in one day. That's an incredibly impressive number, and it also happens to be a record for the company. WhatsApp has been the go-to cross-platform messaging service recently, and has really been gaining more and more steam with users who are leaving BlackBerry, but still have friends on the platform, because it is one of the few options that still supports older BB versions.

WhatsApp says that there were 10 billion incoming messages and 17 billion outgoing messages processed in one 24 hour period. That makes for 27 billion total messages, which beats the old record of 18 billion, which was set on New Years Eve 2012. The incoming and outgoing message totals are not even, according to WhatsApp, because the outgoing message total gets inflated by group message.

It's hard to say how the number stacks up to other messaging platforms, because few others really give out those numbers. We had heard recently that BBM is processing about 10 billion messages a day by its 60 million users. WhatsApp recently said that it has 200 million active monthly users, but has not said how many total registered users are on the platform.

google and apple doesnt need to buy every single company out there. google should concentrate on its own hangout app.

I've used what's app since day 1 and started using Google hangouts as well. The last update really fixed a lot of bugs and has two great features what's app doesn't share which is the ability to use in multiple devices and the video calling.

It all comes down to preferences and I would like Google to stick to their own app and leave me with more options.

I've tried this app as a replacement to the group messaging app GroupMe and I was very disappointed in it and didn't see what the fuss was all about.

So, my question is WHY?! Was there some event everyone had to text about (remember the old record was set New Year's Eve)?

BBM would be going Cross platform later this summer to iOS & Andriod and is the best ever messaging platform. So would be seeing less and less of whatsapp and the others.

If they did this three years ago they would be untouchable. They would have to make it crazy good to get people away from what they are used to.

whatsapp rules! its by far the main IM app in India. Although wechat is rising strongly, it still lacks some features of whatsapp..

wechat and line took a nice bump in popularity when what's app was starting to charge people.

I prefer LINE and kik, but I guess WhatsApp is what's hot right now.
